This place is amazing and offers vegan substitutes for cheese and sour cream. So if you're vegan or have a dairy allergy, you can go out for happy hour and actually enjoy food with your friends. Large portions and decent variety of options for food and drinks.

Service is excellent. Food is very good. The restaurant is very busy, almost all of the time, go early or on a weekday to be seated quickly.

I read some of the bad reviews about this place, but dismissed them before deciding to come here for lunch with my family and parents. BIG MISTAKE!! This place was just all around bad. Sometimes, the bad reviews are spot on. Upon entering, the place looks festive and fun, unfortunately, it all goes down hill fast from there. The hostess... More

Easily among the worst mexican meals I've ever had. What exactly is this stuff? The horribly salty nachos were almost inedible. The so-called enchiladas were nothing of the sort. Luckily, I was able to wash the tastes from my mouth with some cheap Dos Equus amber during happy hour. On my 'Avoid at all costs' list when in Willow Grove!

I am a frequent flyer at Mad Mex, however I usually go to the University City location. I now live in the suburbs, so the Willow Grove location is more convenient so naturally I went to this location instead. What a disappointment! It was my birthday, so I was hoping to have a good time, but that did not happen.... More

Great beer selection, awesome happy hour. The food has been great or - meh.... depends on the day. Never bad, just better some days than others. Decent chilli, burritos sometimes come with missed extras. Staff are nice, sometimes very busy so you don't get a chance to ask for those missing items.........

I really enjoyed their honey Chipotle bbq wings and their pick 3 salsa. You're able to try lots of flavor without breaking the bank! It's great to go during happy hour because you get all the great food and drinks for a fraction of the cost.

Been here a couple times, and it was a decent place. This last time we had HORRIBLE service. She said she'd bring water, never did until I asked 2 more times. She never asked my husband if he wanted a refill on his soda, again had to ask numerous times. Waited a really long time for our appetizer and then... More

The food and atmosphere is very good here. The service can be slow at times, but can be overlooked due to the food! I love the spinach, mushroom quesadillas here. Truly some of the best! The house cilantro lime salad dressing is to die for!

Description
Pull up a stool, join us at the Mad Mex in Willow Grove, PA. We are Funky and not scared to put fun things together if they taste good. We make just about everything from scratch daily. Inspired by West Coast food: healthy, fun, local, experimental. And microbrews. We don't use any lard but simple marinades of citrus and spices. We love Mexican food and big flavors, big plates, fire and sunshine, beer and tequila to wash it down. That is why we are Funky Fresh Cal-Mex! This ain't no Mexican restaurant, this is MAD MEX! Come in and enjoy one of the best happy hours in Willow Grove.
